Procrastination is an operation, when you choose to do something else instead of the task that you know you should be doing. People often think that they have enough time, but in reality it’s a lie to ourselves. There are many reasons why people procrastinate. Among the most common excuses are poor time management or being easily distracted, If we procrastinate over a long period of time, then we can become demotivated and disillusioned with our work. Consequently, we become life losers. I used to be a really big procrastinator. It was always a big problem in the school, when i was leaving my homework’s and projects at the last moment and then i was getting bad marks. When i started working at the company i was always ,, disappointing,, my boss until i was fired. But thanks for internet, where i found many tips and programs, after which i started being more productive in my life and i want to share with the strategies that i used: 1. Forgive yourself for procrastinating in the past. 2. Focus on doing, not avoiding. Write down the tasks that you need to complete, and specify a time for doing them. 3. Promise yourself a reward. 4. Turn off your email and social media, and avoid sitting anywhere near a television while you work! And there is also a website that is really amazing—BankOfProductivity.com
